Oh, Joy!!


Isn't she a cutie? She is called Little Missy from High Hopes stamps! I knew that I couldn't wait to color her!! And, I had to make her blonde like my little almost blonde cutie. I colored her last night, but I didn't even have a clue what colors I was going to use. "Fate" intervened, and I knew that I wanted to use the 6x6 pack of Euphoria paper from Basic Grey that I ordered from Jacksonbelle Embellishments. (Pssst...it's actually my second pack of the same paper...I love it!) I even broke out the Making Memories slice to cut some of the background pieces. Finally, I had it all put together, and the ribbon just wasn't right. Unfortunately, I had already stuck everything down. How can I remedy this? Well, the heavens opened up, cue chorus, and I thought, "PRIMAS!" Haven't you ever had one of those moments? Well, whispers from God don't always work with me...I need more like a clonk on the head (but that's a whole other story!). The image is colored with both Copics and pencils (like Prismas but by Faber Castell).


You're probably asking why she busted out all of her tricks on this one? Well, I'm trying out for a guest designer spot on the High Hopes team. The goal was to submit one card using this sketch and submit by this Sunday. Hey, you gotta be in it to win it, right? Wish me luck...I'll definitely need it!!
